    So, I ordered a special set (with gold chrome) of Hotrod stickers. Delta (of Reprolabels) had to make another sheet because I also wanted to preserve the yellow color in some areas as well as the silver. I made use of several extra stickers to make Hotrod's wing "3-tone." Hotrod IS cool, and shiney!

    Very nice looking. I am still on the fence about getting reprolabel for my Hot Rod. I like the look and all but the price's pretty steep.

    Yes, I must find my copy of "Lords of the Bling." :) 

    In regard to price, you pay for quality. And even the normal set is top notch. Go ahead, buy it..... You know you wanna. ;)

    that looks great! needs some chrome stickers for the exhaust pipes though, they just don't look right with the silver paint.

    how much did that special set cost you?

    I ordered several sets together. I think it was $15 for the modified set. He may have given me a discount since I ordered several sets.

    To me, Classics Hotrod out of the package is kind of dim in the chest. The added orange makes it more vibrant.

    Delta, if you're listening, you gotta offer this set on your site. That is just too cool. Chi-ching bling bling, baby!

    Nope. I was special ordered these. I have the Starscream ones also, but I haven't had time to apply them yet. I think I may leave Starscream's wings as-is with the red stripes.
